Seven millions years ago Hawaii rose from the sea a volcanic wasteland. How these islands transformed themselves into paradise is a story that defies the odds and challenges our expectations. From its hot molten core to the colossal waves battering its coast, Hawaii is a remote and very wild bit of paradise that continues to transform itself. It is a group of islands teeming with endangered and unique species that have until now thrived in the isolated and wild range of environments. Hawaii has more endangered species that any other U.S. state. National Geographic takes us on an untamed journey to Hawaii, a place that through a mix of fire, ice and water, has transformed itself from a harsh, inhospitable environment into a tropical paradise on earth.
